In my opinion the Dolphins are in the worse place you can be in the NFL, not the worse but not even a .500 team with a bad general manager and no up and coming young players.

In 5 years of Jeff Ireland player selecting we have 1 player I would consider an impact player (Camren Wake), In 5 years of drafting for the Dolphins Ireland has drafted 0 (Zero) stars. I’m sure this will be year 6.

Ryan Tannehill will Joe Flacco not bad, but not great, will probably set the team bad 4-6 years. You cannot miss open receivers down field; deep ball throws are not something you improve much with time. Short and dump down Ryan will do just fine, good athlete but when you cannot hit an open receiver 25,30 yards down field, we’ll see Joe Flacco.

Next year I predict a 6-10 record, harder schedule but we do play the Jets & Buffilo 2x.
It’s just sad.

Mike Sherman wasn’t/isn’t ready for the NFL. There’s a reason why defenses had an easy time against the Miami offense. I’m tired of the GM making these types of mistakes.
Unfortunately, doing the same thing each year and expecting different things to happen is just a sign of how this organization works.
Mr. Ross, do you read this or do your assistants? I’ve been a Miami fan for 40 years and the last 15 have been painful to say the least. We need something big. Remember when you passed on Peyton Manning? That worked out well (for Denver). Things that seem so obvious to outsiders need to be given X% of the mgmt. team’s time to get a different view. At least pay outside consultants for other views…something.
